Extreme Parenting (Don't try this at home.)

This limmerick is in response to Simply Snicker's poetry prompt at www.simplysnickers.blogspot.com . The prompt for this week is: total, tradition, triumph. I'm sure you're glad I decided not to continue my alliterative adventures. Here you go:

There once was an oral tradition
On the triumph of nuclear fission
You yell and blow up
Then they come like a pup
Tails tucked into total submission.

Excellent limerick!

I remember when I used to yell at my kids. It worked with one but not the other.

My entry for SS this week reflects my writers block frustrations
